Badly startles Pokémon that used a move of the same type.

Electrify (Japanese: そうでん Electrify) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Helioptile and Heliolisk.

Effect

If the target has not yet used a move, Electrify makes the target's move Electric-type for that turn, even if it is a status move. Moves with a charging turn will only change type if the user is affected by Electrify on the turn it does damage. Electrify will not cause Conversion to change its user into the Electric-type if Conversion is the user's first move. Electrify does not affect Struggle.

If the move Flying Press is affected by Electrify, it deals Electric/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry is affected by Electrify, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively does not stack with its Electric type (a Water-type Pokémon hit by the move will only take ×2 damage); in Inverse Battles, Freeze-Dry affected by Electrify will hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively.

Electrify bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

If powered up by an Electrium Z into Z-Electrify, the user's Special Attack stat raises one stage.

Electrify can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if the move Parabolic Charge was used in the prior turn.
